<BR>At 2:34am, my Gran finally stopped struggling and passed away. I got to be with her, hold her hand, tell her it was ok to go, and tell her good-bye. <P>She was 90, had 14 children, 3 step-children and about 200 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a very courageous and strong woman. I am proud to be her granddaughter. <P>Mitzi [Linked Image from marriagebuilders.com]

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I know she was a very special woman - especially to you. I truly envy people who grow up having extended family members whom they love nearby. I never speak to my cousins. by the time I was born I had only two living grandparents. Grandfather who lived across the street from us died when I was six and grandmother who lived three hours away died right after I turned 15. <P>Cherish your memories. Hold her dear. And as long as she lives within your heart, she lives.<P>((((((((((((((((Mitzi and all three boys)))))))))))))))))

<B>Gina and Raskal</B><P>Thanks for the thoughts and prayers!<P>Ya know, she was an amazing woman. She raised all of her children plus helped raise some of her grandchildren. She became a widow when my grandfather died in 1973, and lost 3 of her children. She struggled with a lot of illnesses (strokes, broken hip, leg amputation, congestive heart failure, etc...) but always remained strong and positive. <P>I feel truly blessed to have been there when she left this world!
